    Looking for people’s esperience with internally routed dropper posts? I currently have a normal reverb and would like to change to a internal routed one, options so far are reverb stealth, ks lev integra and thomson covert.

    Are any others worth looking at? Is bleeding the reverb a pain once installed? Is the thomson worth the extra wonga?

    We are running two IR Specialized Command posts in our Enduros. They just work with no faffing about or bleeding including winter in the Peak and summer in the Alps.

    I am hoping it will be the KS Lev that is going on my new bike 😆
    From research and what I’ve heard/been told it’s the best. Certainly see more Reverb issues posted on here!

    There’s probably ten times as many people with Reverbs.

    Everything else is far more expensive, most of them aren’t available with 150mm travel, or internal routing.

    Levs have their own reliability issues, like the internal cable breaking. Fox/Thomson are stupidly expensive.

    Have run my stealth reverb for just over a year, no issues and not touched since its been fitted.

    Having had a Specialized dropper and a Reverb I would say the Reverb is in a different class. The Spesh post you have to make sure it’s in the right position when you lower it because it only has 2 dropped positions , also it returns like a cannonball if you activate it while not sitting on the saddle . The Reverb just goes where you want it to and comes back up at a much more gentle pace . When I had the Spesh post I often didn’t return it to full height if I was riding undulating stuff as it was a faff to get it back into the down a bit position .

    I’ve got a Yep Uptimizer and it’s great. Having 155mm travel in the 30.9mm size was key as I didn’t want another KS. It’s at the top end of the price scale but you get what you pay for. If I need to I can speak directly to the guy who designed it. Their customer support has been spot-on so far.

    Agreed. The remote on the Spesh is excellent, but the post isn’t as good as the remote. The Reverb is just better, in almost every way.

    Any experiences with the thomson covert? Though may have to wait until they come down to the same price as the normal thomson one!
